The Power Source

But true wisdom and power are found in God; counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 NLT

 

Recently, I went on a lengthy road trip with my family. We traveled nearly 3,000 miles on our journey by car. During one of my driving times on the interstate, I got a good view of the road and thought about my personal journey in this life. As I made this connection in my mind, God opened my heart to see something else. He allowed me to observe the power lines on the side of the road. I noticed that several of the power lines appeared to be in a cross shape. I took the picture above and immediately thought God is moving me to write a devotion about this power line observation.

As we traveled along, God guided my thoughts and I noticed that the individual poles were all connected together. Some of the poles were not in perfect alignment, but still connected. All of the connections flowed back to a main power source.

Granted, this was not a new sighting for me as I have seen power lines all throughout my life. What made this sighting different was viewing the power lines with spiritual eyes. We can see things as they are. The power to see the work of God is by using spiritual eyes. This can only be done by making a connection with God.

God wanted me to see through spiritual eyes that believers are all connected. We are connected and derive power from each other through our faith by fellowship, scriptures, and prayer. We are connected back to the main power source which is the cross. Jesus submitted to God’s will and death on the cross so that we would believe in him and have this power connection.

We are all not going to be in perfect alignment with our individual faith. However, we are connected in our belief and to God as our main power source. If we are not connected along the power lines, we cannot experience the power at all.

What are you connected to? Are you connected to a power source of faith, believers, or God? Are you completely disconnected for some reason? What is keeping your from connecting?

Regardless of what people say or do, God wants a connection with you. People’s words and actions can discourage our faith, but we do not have to stay stuck there. People do not have ruling authority of power over our connection with God. God is the main power source that we need to connect with regardless of judgments, circumstances, and emotions.

Today, do whatever it takes to connect with God. Connect by prayer to God and pray with other believers. I will start a connection by this prayer below.

 

Prayer for Connection

Heavenly Father, Lord, we need you! We need to connect with you. We need your power to sustain us in this life. So much intake of the world on a daily basis ruins us, discourages our faith, and turns our attention away from You. We wonder where You are and how we can connect with you. Allow this prayer to establish a renewed connection to You. Show your face to us as you did to Moses. Make you presence in our lives up close and personal. Remind us of your love for us today. In Jesus’ name~ Amen!

 

1 John 4:5 MSG

Every God-begotten person conquers the world’s ways. The conquering power that brings the world to its knees is our faith. The person who wins out over the world’s ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God.
